Lina Romay stars as Celestine in this minor French sex-comedy from cult director Jesus Franco, using the pseudonym "Clifford Brown." In 1700s France, Celestine comes to work at the mansion of the Count de la Braquette (Howard Vernon), an impotent old man to whom she must read from the Marquis de Sade before he can fall asleep. Celestine sets about having sex with everyone from the gardener (Ramon Ardid) to virginal niece Martine (Monique Delaunay) and Count Fernand (Olivier Mathot) before the entire household converges on her room for the finale. Franco's film is rather explicit for light comedy, but is primarily a breezy, engaging exploitation trifle. Monica Swinn, Jean-Pierre Bouyxou, and Franco have cameos, and filmmaker Gerard Kikoine served as editor.
